Woodware Challenge with Craftrange – Monochrome Christmas

The Woodware Challenge was set this week by Janet from Craftrange and it is Monochrome Christmas

Well confession time… only Debs and Siobhan noticed that I messed up with the blog this week, well perhaps others noticed and were just too polite to say anything, or as confused as me. I posted Crafty Debs card on the Woodware Blog on the wrong day so I  have swapped thing about and I am posting mine today, but you will find Crafty Debs‘ monochrome card on her blog today.

So here is mine for the week.

I decided on blue as I thought that it would be different. The design I have copied from Stitch Magazine  and was designed by Ann Holden, of course it was a lovely card done in fabric, but I have taken a much easier route and used vellum from the Primary Selection and used a blue super scalloped circle

1

I punched 15 of the circles

2then fold in half and score well

next I pinched the centre in the opposite direction.  This is really easy to do on the vellum.

4

this is the bit that is tricky to get your head around, push the folds together to meet in the middle, score the folds.

5

When you let it open out it will look like this.

6

I added some double sided tape to hold it in place, then folded it back together. Leaving the top section loose.

7

So it looks like this.

8

then add a foam square and push it closed. i like using the foam square as they add dimension to the sections

this is how they look (only I have photo shopped this image so it looks as if it has been eaten by a House-Mouse.

add some Stickles and make your tree.

My card is 8 x 8 and the pale blue panel measures 7″ x 7″ which works well for this size of punched circle

star

I punched a Regular (orange) size star from  a piece double sided sticky sheet and added crystal glitter

the stars in the punched inverted corners are the mini size

I had no idea how many circles I would need when I started so..

I have a mini one too I cut the pot from double sided sticky sheet and covered it with Western Blue Glitter and then added a line of Stickles.

We have some wonderful Monochrome inspiration on the Woodware blog not to mention CraftyDebs card over there today, so why not feast your eyes?
